This document contains the proceedings of a workshop
held at the National Institute of Standards and
Technology on Fire Growth and Spread on objects
typically found in residential settings. The focus of
interest is the period from the ignition of the initial
object up to the point where the fire results in the
ignition of a second item. The purpose of the workshop
was to obtain an understanding of the current status of
experimental characterization and modeling capability,
and to provide guidance for future research efforts.
The workshop was organized into several sessions with
specific topics areas. Several presentations were
included in each session, with an extended period for
discussion at the end of each session. For each
presentation, an extended abstract by the author is
included along with any visuals used for the
presentation. For each workshop session, the session
moderator prepared a summary of key points of research
interest from the resentations and discussion. All of
the documents are in pdf format, requiring Adobe Acrobat
Reader to access the files.
